Update on the club e-mail list:
As already announced in a previous post to this website (see below), the club e-mail list that was tirelessly maintained by Gene since the birth of this club is no longer usable, and Gene is taking this opportunity to retire from the e-mail business, at least temporarily.
Until somebody better volunteers to take over, I, Julie, have started building a NEW e-mail list for the club. Until somebody better volunteers to take over, I, Julie, will send out the club's e-mails. But in order to get on the new e-mail list, you have to e-mail ME, Julie, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Think of it this way: Your subscription to the club's e-mail list has expired. It's time to renew your subscription. Just like you have to renew your newspaper and magazine subscriptions, except this is FREE.
In the interest of KISS (keeping it simple, stupid), I will add you to the e-mail list if and only if you e-mail me. Don't bother phoning me. It won't work to give me your business card at a meeting. Don't give me a piece of paper with all your friends' e-mail addresses written on it. YOU HAVE TO E-MAIL ME and tell me, "Please add me to the club e-mail list" or something to that effect, preferably in English. (Or French, if it comes to that. I can read a little French.)
If and only if you e-mail me, I can add your address to the club's e-mail list with with a couple of mouse-clicks, and I won't lose it, misspell it, or otherwise screw it up. (Wait a minute; I take that back. I should never underestimate my own ability to screw something up. But e-mail me anyway.)
